The “Boarding Schools in Germany” program is geared towards highly motivated students between 10 and 17 years of age, offering the chance to participate in regular classes in German boarding schools. The goal is to finish a school career in Germany and to graduate with the Abitur (German secondary education leaving certificate), which at the same time is the entrance ticket for university admittance in Germany as well as a key to a successful career at home.

Finding the right school in Germany is an important matter for both students and parents. The Humboldt-Institut has a network of more than 40 renowned partner boarding schools all over Germany. Our experienced staff will guide you through the demanding process of deciding for the most suitable school before starting the German program at the Humboldt-Institut.

Our counseling team will be your partner for all steps, anything from application at the secondary school of your choice to the planning of the German course until school transition – this ensures an effective and successful counseling process!
